    • The Giants expect Posey (hip) to begin running sprints in mid-January, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Posey underwent season-ending surgery in August that addressed a torn labrum, microfracture and bone spurs in his right hip. While the backstop is progressing on schedule, he isn't expected to be a full participant during spring training. The hope is that Posey will still be ready to go by Opening Day, though he may end up taking on a lighter workload to begin the season. The 31-year-old appeared in just 105 games in 2018 -- his lowest total since 2011 -- hitting .284/.359/.382 with just five homers in those contests.

    • Posey (hip) is making considerable progress, although he may take on a lighter workload to start the 2019 season, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Posey underwent hip surgery in August, and although he should be healthy for Opening Day, the Giants may ease him back into action when the season begins as a precaution. The 31-year-old appeared in 105 games last year, his lowest total since 2011.

    • Giants' Buster Posey: Walking without crutches
      By RotoWire Staff

      Posey (hip) is walking without crutches, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Posey is slowly working his way back from hip surgery that he underwent in late August. The procedure typically carries a 6-to-8 month recovery, leaving the backstop's status for Opening Day up in the air. Despite the operation, Posey is still planning on catching again in 2019.

    • Giants' Buster Posey: Still plans to catch in 2019
      By RotoWire Staff

      Posey (hip) hasn't discussed transitioning to a new position, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. Posey underwent season-ending hip surgery in late August, but despite the major injury, he still intends to primarily play catcher in 2019. This season was the first time since 2011 in which Posey didn't appear in at least 140 games, so he's been one of the most durable catchers in the league over that span. Things can change over the offseason depending on how he recovers from the operation, but at this point, Posey intends to fill the same role next season.

    • Giants' Buster Posey: Shifted to 60-day DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      Posey (hip) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday. Posey has already been ruled out for the remainder of the season after undergoing hip surgery Monday. This move simply frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for Gregor Blanco, whose contract was purchased from the minors Wednesday. At this point, it's unclear if Posey will be ready to go for the start of the 2019 season.
